Clinical Study Published

March 2017- A pilot was launched at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital to study the feasibility of FavorHealth's smartphone application Amie in the peri-operative care of neurosurgical patients. The results, published in the Journal Operative Neurosurgery, demonstrate 100% compliance with both pre- and post-operative instructions, no last minute surgery cancellations nor any readmissions. The study also reported excellent patient satisfaction scores with a net promoter score over 50.

Amie Teams up with Major Metropolitan Hospitals

July 2017 - Washington D.C. - A major Washington D.C. metropolitan academic teaching hospital, Medstar Georgetown University Hospital has partnered with FavorHealth to launch Amie, a patient engagement platform that improves outcomes and enables patients to be more compliant with their physician's instructions. Amie is a HIPAA compliant mobile application that delivers physician-driven pre-operative and post-operative instructions. It optimizes patient engagement by sending educational content, and crucial reminders to patients via text messages. Amie also allows physicians to closely monitor their patients' preadmission status and recovery from surgery, tracking their pain levels, and their wound healing. Amie is being implemented in Neurosurgery, Orthopedics and Transplant.  

 

August 2017 - Maryland - FavorHealth inks a deal with CalvertHealth a prominent Community Hospital in Maryland to bring Amie to the General Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pain Management and Gastroenterology service lines. The hospital has over 220 active and consulting physicians representing over 40 different specialties, and has been serving its community for close than a century. 

 

October 2017 - Florida -  FavorHealth signs with a Southwest Florida hospital network to provide Amie to the Center for Orthopedic and Spine Surgery. This center offers a comprehensive range of services, including foot and ankle surgeries, hip, knee and shoulder surgeries, sports medicine, spine and joint replacement.
